Pixton for Schools is wonderful! We accomplished quite a stunning looking project. The kids had so much fun using the product and they saw the stories that they covered in a whole new light.

It was the perfect way for all of my 9th Grade English kids to get engaged, focused and thinking in a linear fashion both creatively and analytically.
– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade
All the alternative facial expressions and body movements, as well as speech bubbles, added to students' ability to get just the right mood. It was not only fun for the students, but there were so many options the students could use to make the comic fit the scene.
– Grace Mueller, teacher
My students loved working with Pixton! We completed the reading of a graphic novel, and the students were to create a comic from a list of ideas generated from the novel.
– Ms. Gatheridge, 9th Grade
My French Immersion students were very engaged in creating comic strips of their life story. We then downloaded the strips and showed them through a projector while the student gave an oral presentation on their life to date.

We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.

– Ms. Balk, 12th Grade Tech
Pixton was a great professional tool that was user friendly and engaging for my students. I especially liked how well it works with low motivated students and students who have trouble with reading. My students were able to show the range of ways they connected and interpreted a text, offering the whole class a diverse range of analysis.
– Ms. Tannous, 12th Grade
I needed my students to create individual comic strips about the Bill of Rights. Pixton had the perfect image library. And it was easy to use!

Very interesting and useful tool. Our students were really motivated and looking forward to having their Arts lesson.
– Ms. Palomar, Year 7 English Teacher

– Ms. McMullin, 7th Grade
A mind blowing, game changing and all around awesome web-based comic strip generation tool. Following in the footsteps of Flickr, YouTube and Twitter, Pixton is poised to join the short list of cutting-edge, top-tier and truly innovative social web tools.
– Derek E. Baird
Pixton comics are a great way to spark interest in my students and help them retain the basic ideas of a lesson. The combination of various learning methods, visual images and text, along with auditory reading aloud, helps students grasp each concept and retain that knowledge!
– Mr. Bignami, 8th Grade Science
I was able to assess what my students learned in science through their comics.

I found this program an excellent tool in checking the students' writing ability concerning proper grammar, punctuation, and the use of different literary techniques.

It enabled students who can't draw to present information in a graphic genre. It also enables teachers to create assignments to prevent plagiarism.
